Heritage and Culture Warwickshire is looking to commission a contemporary arts practitioner to deliver a series of arts workshops with an Asian women’s group in Rugby to explore recent migration stories and co-create new artwork for exhibition. Crossing Borders is a 6 month collaborative project led by Heritage and Culture Warwickshire (HCW) that uses the collections of Warwickshire’s Museum Service to engage the Apna Ladies group based at the Benn Partnership Centre in Rugby; collecting oral histories and creating new artworks for display in their community centre and at the Market Hall Museum, Warwick. The commissioned artist will be expected to devise and deliver up to 10 art sessions between October 2017 and February 2018 using the arts as a tool to help participants explore their past and present and create their own responses to the Museum collection and themes of identity, migration and belonging. Final outcomes could include group or individual pieces, process works and documentation in any artistic discipline. There is a total artist fee of £1500 (inclusive planning, delivery, travel) plus an additional £350 for materials.
